TMK, the kidnapped girls are a mix of Christians & Islamic believers. Boko Haram seems to wage war on Moslems as well as Christians, & it being Nigeria, upon Animists & assorted other belief systems too, I assume.

Northern Nigeria is mostly Hausa & Fulani - with the strongest identification & history with Islam. Those areas & groups speak Hausa, Fulani & Arabic. The coastal areas have had the most contact with Western - mostly British - governments, are mostly Christian, and have taken the most to education, military, government & so on. They mostly speak English (the official language) - & Yoruba & Ibo (these two in the south).

I think Boko is more opposed to Modernism than Christianity - although the difference is moot if your home, church, business is destroyed & you & your family are assaulted & killed. Does Boko understand that they can't hope to destroy Christianity in the World? Possibly - but rationality doesn't seem to be their current leader's strong point. Nigeria is a web of competing tribes/factions/cultures/languages/religions, in a matrix of easy oil money, unrestricted opportunities for governmental & personal graft & no apparent sense of shame. It's a v. bad mix.

Which may be one reason that Nigeria has hesitated to even acknowledge the kidnappings & the rest. But Boko is unrelenting, they've fought for 5 years now for their agenda - however ill-defined. The Nigerian gov. will have to get off the pot soon ...

Yes but they didn't find him where they were looking for him - namely Afghanistan - did they? And when they did find him it was more by luck than astuteness based on military intelligence . . . otherwise they'd still be looking for him in Afghanistan today!

TMK, Boko hasn't faced off against real military. & with chopper & gunship support, I think US forces would make quick work of Boko. If the girls are held nearby, we could probably be in & out, kill most of the cadre, & get away with most of the girls. That's assuming that the majority of Boko militia are amateurs & not willing to die for their cause. If they are die-hards, it could turn into a massacre. That's the down side.

However, the Nigerian government by itself seems disinclined to do anything @ all. Even if we wind up in a bloodbath, it may be worthwhile to impress upon Boko that we don't approve of kidnapping children.
It won't! And anyway they're not only smarter than the Nigerian government, they're smarter than ours.

And you think Christianity is any less interested in world domination ?? You should read a history book some time.

Bin Laden was also the leader of a notorious terrorist organization who was perhaps the most noticeable person on the planet for a decade.

Probably, but it doesn't seek to achieve it by going around the planet slaughtering unsuspecting shoppers in market-places and malls does it! Jesus wept!
